The peer-learning and exchange event provided a platform for public debt managers in Africa to share and learn from the experiences of their peers and apply the lessons in their own countries, where appropriate. Selected international experts also participated to share the latest evidence, recommended practices and norms that influence the outcome of sovereign debt negotiations.

The four areas that were covered at the peer-learning event were:

  • Improving the transparency of sovereign debt negotiations
  • Enhancing the government’s negotiations position through rigorous financial analysis
  • Understanding key legal concepts and room to manoeuvre
  • Assessing the options and opportunities for restructuring sovereign debt
